Winter 2020/2021 News Letter
Our Annual Meeting and Dinner is scheduled for Sunday January 17, 2021.
MARK YOUR CALANDAR.
The Annual Dinner will look a bit different this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Annual Dinner / Meeting will be held at the Silver Lake Rod and Gun Club with the meal being served cold in a microwaveable container. There will still be raffles (baskets and guns). Renewal of membership will take place as will the election. The membership list will be split into three different time frames and you are asked to come at the specified time based on your last name. Members are asked to limit the number of additional guests to keep numbers to a minimum for us to comply with the COVID state and federal guidelines. Members whose last names begin with the letters A-F should plan on arriving between 12 and 1 pm. Members whose last name begins with the letters G-P should plan on arriving between 1 and 2 pm. Members whose last names begin with the letters Q-Z should plan on arriving between 2 and 3 pm. Membership renewals will take place upon entering the facility, with a limited number of members allowed into the building at one time. After membership dues are paid, the raffle items will be available to view and purchase tickets. All members will enter through the front doors and exit through the side door. Arrangements will be made for those not able to navigate stairs. Every member will receive a ballot to fill out for the elections which can be printed prior to the meeting and turned in at the meeting or can be mailed (emailed) in as well.
The Club will be supplying the meal roasted pork, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, dinner roll and apple pie (menu subject to change). Please RSVP to Dan Hungerford via cell phone or text to 607-321-4489.
There will be many baskets to be raffled off. There will also be 2 guns raffled off. The 12 Gun Raffle tickets will also be available. This is a great way to help support the club, by purchasing and selling tickets. Where else can you purchase a ticket with 12 chances to win a great gun for $20.00??
This club is no different than any other organization. Many officers and/or directors have served for many years and need a break. I know we all are busy but we have one of the best Rod & Gun Clubs anywhere. We really need some of you to step up and help make it even better.
